Should be an electrical diagram on the motor. The motor name plate should also indicate if it is a dual voltage motor. There should be a cover on the end of the motor to access the terminals.

Not enough electricity to run my air compressor


If your compressor runs on 220V and you only have 110V service where the compressor is located, you'll need to contact an electrician to set you up a 220V service.

Can,t find replacement parts for this lemon thanks

I just browsed the net and found several sites that sell coleman parts. Above is just one I copied and pasted. If your unit is older, if you know the type of pump you can search for that. eg. (debilvius) A lot of compressors have the same pump under a different name like Coleman, Sanborn etc. I have found some units that are just so old they are obsolete and parts just aren't available.Hope this helps. Good luck!

Electric Motor running slow


Century / Magnetek motors are used on many compressors but usually is an upgrade to have the option to easily switch from 110 to 220. Dewalt, Rol Air, Jenny, Emglo and others are considered high end compressors and come with switch for selecting voltage. One still must change the cord if selecting 220v setting. One thing in common is that 115v motors are never more than 2-3 HP because the amp draw for anything over 2hp is likely higher than 20 amps and would trip most common outlet breakers. You noted that your motor sticker lists 6.5 hp at 15 amp 220v so it could not work with 110v because it would draw over 30 amps and just not be practical. Magnetek motors are very good quality and most always state on sticker 110/220v and show wiring diagram for proper connection. Your compressor was most likely built to be stationary and be hardwired into an outlet/switchbox with heavy duty wiring or special cord to run such a high hp motor. You made a great buy however, because the motor alone lists for several hundered dollars alone. You could replace the motor with a 110v but you would loose the fast performance / recovery of that 6.5 hp motor. Like replacing a v8 engine with a 4 cyl. but expect to pull same load, not likely. Good luck with your purchase, and post again if you have other question.

Change from 220v to 110v on air compressor


I can't blame you for askig, but here's my response. 5 HP is 3750 running watts. or about 35 amps at 110 volts and it would take somewhere around 50 amps to start it provided the motor could even be wired for 110 which I don't believe it can and for that exact reason. I'm sorry, but it's just not practical.

Coleman compressor no build up of pressure


Parts for coleman are available at www.mastertoolrepair.com your compressor is listed as L0502710. If however you like to tinker, you can make a pretty good reed valve out of aluminum can material or other (any ideas?). It is fairly easy to cut, does not last as long as factory stainless steel, but for short term, why not? Good Luck

Coleman 5Hp Compresser


All electric compressors share a basic design with ac power pressure switch with unloader and checkvalve between the pump and the tank. When the pressure switch powers off, it unloads the compressor by releasing the air in the discharge hose. You will notice a small tire stem pin and a lever to engage it somewhere on the pressure switch. If the compressor stops before reaching set cutoff point, the air pressure remains in the discharge hose not allowing the motor to start, thus the hum you hear. Solution is to check for the proper function of pressure switch /unloader, tank check valve (if check valve leaks air back to compressor it will load motor causing hum) and extra measure check capacitor for at least 90% of rated valve. Finally, do not run this compressor with an extension cord, use more hose instead. enjoy
